Ahead of Veterans Day tomorrow, students across the district are recognizing veterans for their service and learning about the storied history of our armed forces, including the meaning of Veterans Day and the impact it has today.
High School students have studied memorials erected in honor of the nation’s veterans and the impact that specific groups of veterans had on our country. In some classes, students had the opportunity to interview a veteran or a loved one of a veteran to discuss what their service meant to them.
At the Primary School, in addition to learning about what Veterans Day means, students brought in photos of veterans in their family, which were used to create a special bulletin board in the lobby to thank our local veterans for their service.
At the Middle School, many students penned letters to local veterans stationed overseas to thank them for their service and provide a morale booster in what is no doubt a difficult time.
We would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all those who have served our country both at home and abroad.
